  • If you go to the Kofu first of all should go to the Takeda shrine. I think if you think is a small shrine Takeda Shingen in the region used to live, quite memorable! From Kofu station is loose and so nice to walk like I'm!

  • There were people doing weddings and Takeda Shrine on the site of the poet lived in Takeda's three generations (nobutora and Shingen, Katsuyori), did. Other castles like stupid broad because not even the move is not difficult. Also feel sacred, is recommended.

  • lots of cherry trees along day from Kofu station. its a good 30 min walk up the hill but its really nice in spring. there is a nice view from the gate downhill (a cherry tree avenue) and across the city.
  • Beautiful shrine and surrounding area. Nice to walk around and take lots of photos!
  • Well kept, ample spaces to walk around, beautiful cherry trees.
  • 100 next meijo Takeda's Studio. Near the souvenir shops and vibrant feel. Former Samurai and lives in modern I think... is amazing. Cool nokyo-sho book. 100 meijo stamps are managed here.

  • Is about 500 years ago, in this area to ensure he was being enshrined. And think of the mountains of this Kai was he looking at absolutely and deeply. It is a shrine to enshrine the hero Takeda Shingen, the shrine itself was very nice. Got the impression is visited during the week, many of you visit the revered as the hometown pride.
